USCG Blackfin and Dorado
The 87’ United States Coast Guard Cutter “Blackfin” and “Dorado” were recently launched and put back in service, ahead of schedule and within budget. They were hauled out at the Platypus Marine Shipyard for an extended period and had major dry dock repairs performed. Work included, but was not limited to: exterior sandblasting, priming and painting of the main deck, topsides and hull underwater body. Antifouling paint was applied and new zincs installed. The running gear and power train was removed, inspected and underwent a complete servicing. The USCG “Blackfin” and “Dorado” projects are great examples of Platypus Marine’s ability to provide the US Coast Guard and Navy, ahead of schedule, and within budget dry docking services.
